Heroes: Book V Midpoint Brings Nótt and Valentian Faves!

Book V of Fire Emblem Heroes is approaching its halfway point. Firstly, you can feast your eyes on a new story trailer “The False Monarch”.

If you haven’t been keeping up with the Book V story, please note that there are spoilers for one of the characters.

Also, there will be a “Book V Mid: Nótt and More” summoning event from 8th June 2021.

Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.

The New Heroes are Palla, Zeke and Luthier from Shadows of Valentia, plus Mythic Nótt from Book V.

In addition, Fernand will be available from a Grand Hero Battle, while Tatiana can be obtained from quests.

You can get two 5-star copies of Tatiana; afterwards, she’ll be a 3~4-star Hero starting from June’s Legendary Hero banner.

Please continue for a breakdown of the new Heroes from the trailer!

Palla: Kind Eldest Sister

Type: Red Sword Flier
Voice: Alexis Tipton
Artist: teffish

Weapon: Ladyblade – [Enables Canto (2)]. Inflicts Spd -5. Unit attacks twice. (Even if foe initiates combat, unit attacks twice.) Calculates damage using the lower of foe’s Def or Res.
[Canto (2)] – After an attack, Assist skill, or structure destruction, unit can move 2 space(s).
(Unit moves according to movement type. Once per turn. Cannot attack or assist. Only highest value applied. Does not stack. After moving, if a skill grants another action would be triggered [like with Galeforce], Canto will trigger again. Unit’s base movement has no effect on movement granted. Cannot warp [using skills like Wings of Mercy] a distance greater than 2 space[s].)
Assist: Rally Atk/Def +
A: R Duel Flying 4 – Grants HP +5 & Atk/Spd/Def/Res +2. If unit is 5-star, level 40, a Legendary or Mythic Hero, and unit’s stats total to less than 175, treats unit’s stats as 175 in modes like Arena. If unit is 5-star, level 40, not a Legendary or Mythic Hero and unit’s stats total less than 180, treats unit’s stats as 180 in modes like Arena. (Higher-scoring opponents will appear. Stat total calculation excludes any values added by merges and skills.)
C: Atk/Res Rein 3

Zeke: Past Unknown

Type: Blue Lance Cavalry
Voice: Patrick Seitz
Artist: Yamada Kotaro

Weapon: Holy Gradivus – Unit can counterattack regardless of foe’s range. At start of combat, if unit’s HP >= 25%, unit makes a guaranteed follow-up attack.
Special: Bonfire
A: Atk/Def Catch 4
B: Lull Atk/Def 3
C: Def/Res Menace – At start of turn, if unit is within 4 spaces of a foe, inflicts Def/Res -6 on closest foes through their next actions and grants Def/Res +6 to unit for 1 turn.

Luthier: Odd Wayfarer

Type: Green Tome Infantry
Voice: Brian Beacock
Artist: maCo

Weapon: Gronnfox+
Special: Glimmer
A: Swift Sparrow 2
B: Guard 3

* Also available as, gasp, part of the 4-star focus.

Nótt: Moon’s Elegance

Type: Blue Lance Infantry
Voice: Erika Harlacher
Artist: Kozaki Yusuke
Bonus: Shadow/Def (unlocks extra slot in Aether Raids and Mjolnir’s Strike)

Weapon: Hrímfaxi – Grants Spd +3. At start of combat, if unit’s HP >= 25%, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res +5 and bonus to Atk/Spd/Def/Res during combat = current bonus on each of unit’s stats for 1 turn. (Example: If unit has +7 bonus to Atk, grants Atk +12, for a net bonus of Atk +19.) Calculates each stat bonus independently. Effect: [Pathfinder]
[Pathfinder] – When an ally moves through unit’s space, that space is counted as 0 spaces moved instead of 1 space. (Unit’s space can be freely added to ally’s normal movement. Applies only to allies with movement types that allow movement through unit’s space.)
Special: Dragon Fang
A: Distant Counter
B: Moon-Twin Wing – At start of combat, if unit’s HP >= 25%, inflicts Atk/Spd -5 on foe during combat, and also, if unit’s Spd > foe’s Spd, reduces damage from attacks during combat and from area-of-effect Specials (excluding Rokkr area-of-effect Specials) by percentage = difference between stats x 4 (max 40%).
C: Atk/Spd Menace – At start of turn, if unit is within 4 spaces of a foe, inflicts Atk/Spd -6 on closest foes through their next actions and grants Atk/Spd +6 to unit for 1 turn.
